Excavators are among the most commonly used machines in construction and Komatsu excavators are considered the finest machines on the market.
For our latest feature, we take you on a walk-around of the Komatsu PC2000-8, one of the most powerful yet fuel efficient excavators on the market. With an engine output of 713kW (956HP), a 15.7yd3 backhoe bucket and a towering height of 7.1m, this is an incredible machine to see in action.
When you consider what a 200+ tonne excavator can accomplish, it’s easy to see why fuel consumption is such a big expense. To improve fuel efficiency and eco-friendliness, the PC2000-8 is equipped with the new Komatsu SAA12V140E engine that features clean, fuel efficient and powerful performance. Its on-demand power control system drastically reduces fuel consumption per hour, as does its energy-saving functions like the “Eco-gauge” and “E mode”.
Other features include:
The Komatsu PC2000-8 has a simplified and durable structure to keep repair and maintenance costs low. It has a service-friendly design with a maintenance deck surrounding the power module and drain ports access from ground level. Other features that contribute to a reduction in overhaul man-hours include:
Operator comfort and safety are key productivity drivers. The Komatsu PC2000-8 has exceptional visibility, low noise and vibration, and an easy to use 7-inch touch LCD screen. Its spacious, air conditioned cab is pressurised to prevent dust from entering and comes complete with air-suspension seat and ergonomic controls.
